Pacific Seafood president Frank Dulcich was honored on Feb. 17 at Oregon State University’s (OSU) Weatherford Awards for his contributions to Oregon’s business environment.
Dulcich was one of six honorees at the third annual event. Recipients were selected for their commitment to serving Oregonians and their meaningful innovations that have made a positive impact on the business community. The awards are named after OSU’s Weatherford Hall, which houses the largest residential entrepreneurship program in the country.
“It is a great honor to be recognized by our peers,” said Dulcich. “It is great validation not only for me, but also for our team members, customers and partners. We look forward to continuing to be an active and integral part of the business communities we serve.”
Dulcich was born and raised in Portland and attended Central Catholic High School, received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Portland and is a member of the Board of Regents for the University. He is past chairman and a current member of the Young Presidents Organization (YPO) as well as an active member of the Chief Executive Organization (CEO).
Dulcich is a third generation company leader of Pacific Seafood and serves as president and CEO. Dulcich’s grandfather started the company in 1941 as a small, fresh seafood retail counter operation in Portland, Ore. Dulcich has been with Pacific Seafood for the past 25 years, working to expand the operations to include processing West Coast product from Alaska to Mexico with key distribution centers in Washington, Oregon, California, Texas, Nevada and Utah.
